Okay here is the deal !
I try to get all the info needed to get the server back in order, but it is such a mess !

There are keys without any explenation what there are for especially as some give them weird names !

Also I have no idea where the a2 map pack came from ( I never put it on there ) So NO idea no idea of maker and especially no idea about keys that belong with it !

Also this prevents uploading too the steam the a2 maps.

I think we should get the server as basic as possible and remove a shitload of mods

I would say only cup with the islands that should be enough !

Saw that there is malden 2035 now

Guys we need to clean up this mess it is really a mess now !

I want to remove the

Following to also make it steam ready !

a2 maps
Sf lol
The nimitz
marintime thingy

Also not put on the old good map !

With the cup we have islands enough we have 3 exta islands that are also on the steam island dualla, lingor and panthera this should be enough !

This mean that a shitload of old missions will be broken especially with the sf fodler gone but you guys need too fix those missions just replace the jeep from trixie with some jeep from cup and also the soldiers or create them yourself .

It is such a mess that I if I want to do it correctley need to redo the server and redo all the mods download too see what keys go with it !

This is why I always wanted the keys in the folders and a texts with explenetion of what keys goes with what client side mods.

In then years all stuff is just dumpt in there and been causing some crashs of the server as I have seen in on the server log.

So what do we want ?


Fix the problem and fix the server and than fix the missions, or let it be ?

We also need too see what client mods we want too run to see what we want as I like the J.S.R.S. Soundmod but other runs the dynamic sound ( limited sounds my idea Razz ).

And like I said there are 55 keys in the key folder and half of them I have no clue what or ever it came from !
This key for example !

AdvancedRappelling.bikey


I know why it is there but if comes with a script I by accident know j uses in a mission !
You just can't put shit like this in there just for a script you like too run ( not talking about the mods we use and client mods we wanna use ).
It is that it by accident has a clear name so I recognize it otherwise I never would have know !

This and all the things makes it hard too find out what causes errors crashes and more !
And it takes shitload of time to find out !


So you guys tell me clearly what you want I do it and handle it over to you guys !

With regard,
KillerBee

Totally agree with you

Also I would say, clean all old stuff out and just put most subscriped stuff on the server.

Needed Addons: CBA_A3, ALL CUP Mods, Isla Duala, Island Panthera, Lingor/Dingor, task_force_radio, (RHSAFRF+USAF), (Old but Gold Map Pack)

Optional Addons: DynaSound 2, Enhanced Soundscape, Enhanced Movement, (ShackTac User Interface)

If you want to keep the "RHS stuff" as well, i would be ok with it Smile

I tested "Old but Gold Map Pack" and it was working good (CUP addons req.). No idea how many missions are on the server for this islands but i'm ok as well to keep it. I think Kylie made some missions for.

Please keep the optional addons i had written. I really enjoy the new sound effects, gunfire, explosions etc. from DynaSound 2 and Soundscape.
Enhanced Movement is a bit controversial coz you can abuse it in some strange ways. the addon maker still dont want to set limitations but for me, i like the faster jump over low walls when you're under fire. it saves lifes but everybody should handle it fair Smile

ShackTac is pretty good to avoid friendly fire or to see who is infront of you. But its not needed if you dont want it.

Do you want to delete "FA-18" & "SU-35" as well?

Delete:
a2 maps
Sf lol
The nimitz
marintime thingy
FA-18 & SU-35

And keep these:
CBA_A3, ALL CUP Mods, Isla Duala, Island Panthera, Lingor/Dingor, task_force_radio, (RHSAFRF+USAF), (Old but Gold Map Pack)

So to make it short I´m with you Bee & Rue on this one. Get rid of all the old stuff. Keep the working good stuff.

Hey Bee and all Smile,

So yeah Bee I understand it's really understand too complex with so many variables being able to cause bother. I would agree change the server setup so it's easier to manage cause I can really hear your pain on the current setup and also you should be playing and building missions not managing the server all the time.

imho the steam subscriber service is a lot faster and easy to use service and it gets easier for an admin to run when you have less addons to track. Also for steam user it is soooo much easier to add addons.

Anyway peace out Bro and take care Smile

The Dave

Just back from Hols Cool

Well done all your hard work Bee, Re; A2 maps not uploaded by me, don't have the upload speed required.

I logged on with vanilla A3 & went to server but it did not tell me what Addons are now required. Is the server only Vanilla now? or is there a procedure to get all the new addons required for House of Clowns ? ?

======================

To answer my own question, it seems at the moment nothing's changed yet, all still as previous.

Contacted Massi on bis forums to ask if he could make up an Africa Steam work shop pack, also messaged CUP on facebook to see if they could add his Africa pack as an alternative way of doing it. will see what happens. ....

Not sure if it needs Alive or is just Alive compatible. will have to test.
